Consultation process

A broad public consultation exercise was undertaken over the summer to gather stakeholder views on the Council’s approach to balancing the budget. The results of this consultation have informed development of the savings proposals presented as an appendix to this report.

Following the Executive Member Decision Day, all agreed savings proposals will go on to be considered by the Cabinet and Full Council in October and November. Following ratification by Cabinet and Full Council, some proposals may be subject to further, more detailed consultation.


General public and specific stakeholder groups, such as district and parish councils, schools, voluntary and community sector groups and service providers.
